CUNNING DEVIL (LOST FALLS, BOOK 1)
Breaking curses. Battling witchcraft. Revenge.
All in a day's work for Ozzy Turner, folk wizard.
Is a witch throwing curses your way? Something scary scratching at your window in the night? Then I've got just the charm for you.
Mostly, though, I find things. Lost treasures, missing loved ones—if you need something found, I'm your guy.
So when a grieving father hired me to track down a family heirloom stolen by a sticky-fingered hobgoblin, I was happy to help.
No one was supposed to wind up dead. Especially not me.
But they made a mistake when they put a bullet in my stomach and left me for the worms.
They didn't bury me deep enough.
PAY DIRT (LOST FALLS, BOOK 2)
Buried treasure. Ancient secrets. Vengeance unleashed.
When a hungry ghoul uncovered a cache of treasure hidden beneath Lost Falls, he thought all his problems were behind him.
When he realized how wrong he was, he came to me for help.
As Lost Falls' resident folk wizard, breaking curses is my specialty. But the ghoul and his treasure hunting friends found more than cursed gold down there in the dark.
They unleashed something old. Something alive. Something better left buried.
And if I can't send it back where it came from, the treasure hunters won't be the only ones paying the ultimate price.
TOOTH AND NAIL (LOST FALLS, BOOK 3)
A murdered vampire. No witnesses. A blood feud ignited.
Some folks say the only good vampire is a dead vampire. But when the murder of a vampire threatens the fragile peace between vampires and ogres, someone has to wade into the fray to sort the truth from the lies.
Guess who gets that job.
But there's more to this murder than an ancient blood feud. Behind the scenes, someone is stoking the fires of war.
And if I can't uncover the truth soon, we'll all be feeling the heat.
BLOOD MONEY (A LOST FALLS SHORT STORY)
As Lost Falls' resident folk wizard, I can track down anyone.
It should've been a simple job. Find the girl, bring her home.
Except she's not just any girl. She's the bloodslave of one of the most powerful vampires in town.
And I'm not sure she wants to be found.
Note: This short story originally appeared in the Eight in the Chamber anthology.
